In the present day was a day for quiet artwork, with some color. I’ve began in a brand new A5 Sketchbook – A Royal Talens Artwork Creations one. It appears monograms are the theme for this one, a minimum of for now!
It was a pleasant method to spend an hour this afternoon. It’s been very heat right here within the Valleys of South Wales, UK, right now. Fortunately, the solar has moved round from the entrance of the home and it’s feeling cooler now, only a bit.
In any case, again to the artwork.
I drew the essential outlines of the design. I knew I wished so as to add color earlier than including the main points of patterns. It additionally meant I might simply get pleasure from including color with out worrying about having to reink the traces affected by the paint; that’s at all times a recipe for catastrophe for me!
So as to add color, I used comfortable yellows, greens and pinks from the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Artwork Nouveau set of watercolours.
I actually, actually love these watercolours. I really like the best way the imperfections and water-spots create an exquisite background texture. I believe I’ve lastly accepted that imperfections may be completely acceptable and great! I now wish to work out how I can replicate this in my digital and tradigital artwork. However not now. Not right now.
In the present day, I’m flagging in power as soon as once more. I might simply fall asleep. But when I try this, I’ll stay awake properly tonight. So, as a substitute I’ll go get a drink and make one thing to eat. And perhaps do some extra artwork!
